6 The Melodramatic Imagination Brooks, Peter
New Haven, CT USA Yale University Press 1976 0300020015 / 9780300020014 Hard Copy Very Good+ Near Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Inscribed By Author
Yale University Press, New Haven, 1976. Inscribed by author on half-title page as follows: "For Chuck Shepard - who is too nice to be melodramatic - but who I hope enjoys it anyway - with warmest good wishes - [signed] Peter Brooks". (Note: it's not clear if this is the same Charles Shepard who was Director of the Lyman Allyn Museum of Art.) Book is in Very Good+ condition: fading on edges; binding is tight and square, and pages are clean. Dust jacket is in Near Very Good condition: chips and creases along edges. From the dust jacket: "This book enlarges provocatively upon the nature of modern literature. It offers close study of novels by Balzac and James, structural analysis of stage melodrama and Romantic drama, and suggests some revisions of literary history. The argument for recognition of melodrama, Books concludes, is finally an argument for clarity in the perception of the forms available to our culture."

7 The Moral System of Dante's Inferno Reade, W. H. V.
London, U. K. Oxford at the Clarendon Press 1909 Hard Copy Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Oxford at the Clarendon Press, London, 1909. Book is in Good condition: fraying at top and bottom of spine; wear on edges, corners, and along spine; light discoloration on rear board; corners bumped; light foxing on end pages; binding and hinges are tight and pages are clean and tanning with age; not ex-library. No dust jacket. From the introduction: "Aesthetic enjoyment and erudition are very different things, but the line must not be drawn too sharply; and if Dante did mean to represent the working of Divine Justice in the spiritual world, our actual delight in his poem as literature must partly depend upon an understanding of his moral philosophy. Even the most technical and scholastic discussions may thus lead to a fine sort of artistic appreciation,and not the expert only but the general reader is suffering a disadvantage so long as the philosophical foundations of the Divine Comedy are unrevealed."
